If you're like me, you're kind of stunned at how quickly the years seem to pass. One minute, it's January and you're taking down the tree, cleaning up wrapping paper and decorations, and the next minute, you're picking out your Halloween costume, dressing a turkey for Thanksgiving, and putting that tree up again. It's crazy. Well, 2012 is about to pass into the days of Auld Lang Syne and the sun is about to rise on 2013. It's a time for reflection, for resolution, and the biggest question we all must ask ourselves at the advent of each new year...
"what do I wear?"
I'm here to find the answer to just that question.
You could wear something like this. It's fun. It's festive. What could be more appropriate to wear to the big ball drop than a bunch of big balls? It also provides a nice buffer zone between you and other Times Square party goers. Random drunk guy trying to move in for a slobbery midnight kiss? Good luck getting past this thing, bucko.
Or this! It's got the ball theme of the evening, and it even looks snowy, which sometimes happens on New Year's. Plus, it'll help you keep that yearly resolution to drop some weight. You shed that thing and you've instantly lost 10 lbs!
One more look that echoes the beauty of the ball drop, and as you can see, this fantastic look has already won some kind of major award.
Want something a little more "narrative"? How about this throwback number? You can ring in 2013 by remembering the anticipation, wonder, and slightly terrifying foreboding that was the year 2000. "Happy New Year! We might all die at any moment!"
Happy New Year!
